American Heart Association & Lawyers Have Heart Present Speak From the Heart: Lawyers & Mental Health
Lawyers are 3.6 times as likely to be depressed as other professions, and over 20 percent have substance abuse disorder. Statistics have only worsened amidst the ongoing pandemic, as 45% of adults across all professions say COVID has negatively impacted their mental health.
To kick off the 2021 Lawyers Have Heart Virtual Event, we have teamed up with Laurie Besden, Executive Director of Lawyers Concerned for Lawyers of Pennsylvania, for an important conversation regarding lawyers and mental health. Laurie is the definition of success, graduating in the top of her law school class and having a successful career as an attorney. Laurie is also a recovering drug addict with an incredible story to share.
Join us April 27th for a powerful and inspiring chat with Laurie to learn both of the prevalence of these issues and how to overcome them so you can not only lead a healthy life, but focus on having a healthy mind!
